In Europe, the hare has been a symbol of sex and fertility since at least Ancient Greece. The Greeks associated it with the gods Dionysus, Aphrodite and Artemis as well as with satyrs and cupids. The Christian Church connected the hare with lustfulness and homosexuality, but also associated it with the persecution of the church because of the way it was commonly hunted.

Hare Scientific Classification

Hares are fast, agile and intelligent creatures. For this reason hare hunting was once the most widespread form of hunting with hounds, though practiced largely on foot at the time, because stag hunting was reserved exclusively for aristocracy and royalty. This was overtaken by fox hunting due to various factors including field enclosures and a greater desire for mounted hunting. Nonetheless, hare hunting persisted and continues until today.

Ground Floor: The European hare has a wide range across Europe and western Asia and has been introduced to a number of other countries around the globe, often as a game species. In general it is considered moderately abundant in its native range, [14] but declines in populations have been noted in many areas since the 1960s. These have been associated with the intensification of agricultural practices. [67] The hare is an adaptable species and can move into new habitats, but it thrives best when there is an availability of a wide variety of weeds and other herbs to supplement its main diet of grasses. [1] The hare is considered a pest in some areas; it is more likely to damage crops and young trees in winter when there are not enough alternative foodstuffs available. [21] Smith, Rebecca K., et al.

It is confirmation that Nature is a miraculous living being in her own right and that she will flourish when we take the trouble to learn her ways and how to work with her through the seasons.
